Business Partners and Co-Founders Therapy
Luckily, the skills and techniques of couples therapy can be applied to business partnerships, and with equal success.
Are you spending more time with your business partner or co-founder than you are with your significant other? Are you starting to drive each other a little crazy? Feel like a married couple bickering all the time? Or simply can’t see eye to eye on a major decision?
It is a little weird to think about, but the relational dynamics that spring up with our loved ones can and sometimes do spring up with our business partners. A long term relationship is a long term relationship, whether it is with our honeys or with our co-workers. Adding the long hours and the intense stress of running a business together only ramps up the potential of things going awry.
Luckily, the skills and techniques of couples therapy can be applied to business partnerships, and with equal success. I use “state of the Art” evidence-based techniques from couples counseling that will help you:
— decrease any drama, aggravation or hurt feelings
— increase your ability to communicate clearly and efficiently
— help you make hard decisions, or even more mundane ones, faster without tons of processing
— all the while maintaining respect, empathy, and hopefully good feelings for each other, even when you disagree
— Hell, while we are at it, I can even help you experience more Synergy, Flow and Meaning in your work, if that sounds appealing.
So, whether it is just the two of you in a fast and loose start-up, or a bunch of you in well-established organization, feel free to reach out to me for a free 20 minute phone consultation and we can talk about if business partner therapy can help you meet your goals.
